    The nose is somewhat reticent but then comes an explosion of ripe exotic fruit and vanilla. Obviously 1st fill-bourbon and for a very nice price to obtain, is unfortunately followed by a NAS version but fortunately there is still enough of this in stock. Nice compare with the Aberlour A'nadh bourbon vs sherry CS. Does not require much water.

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Though quite modern style (bourbon) cask driven, for me still one of the best value for money 'standard' OB whiskies nowadays (along with Aberlour A'bunadh). There's quite a lot of consistency between the different batches.
    • Nose
      Sweet barley. Fruity sweetness of pear, lemon and orange. Marshmellows. Fresh flowers. Polished oak at the background.
    • Taste
      Very creamy and waxy. Full bodied mouthfeel. Lots of vanilla and honey. Toasted oak. Citrus fruit of lemon and lime as well. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet. Liquorice and ginger. Slightly peppery. Becomes a tad bitter at the end.

    My all time favorite Whisky.  Butterscotch on fire.  with the first sip, you discover if you have any cuts in your mouth.  With the second sip, the optic nerves relax and tension in the forehead dissipated.  With the third sip, all is right with the world.  Drink it neat in a Glencairn if you can, add water or chill it a bit if you must, but please, no ice.  Absolutely Lovely Scotch

    Good whisky. One of the few cask strength whiskies that I prefer to drink neat despite the %.

    • Nose
      Soft, rich and floral. tones of sweet hazelnut praline and reinforced by a dry, citrus oakiness
    • Taste
      Smooth, sweet vanilla and rose, in balanse with a slight spiciness
    • Finish
      Dry, oak finish and aftertaste of considerable length and complexity
